‘Don’t Mess With The Great White Hope’: Christian Radio Says God Killed Elijah Cummings For ‘Messing’ With Trump



‘Don’t Mess With The Great White Hope’: Christian Radio Says God Killed Elijah Cummings For ‘Messing’ With Trump

It has only been four days since the unfortunate passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland and some far-right Christian extremists are already spreading a conspiracy that he was killed by God for defying Donald Trump.

Appearing on conspiracy theorist Chris McDonald’s program “The MC Files,” Christian fundamentalist Stacey Shiflett insisted that Trump was sent by God himself to govern the U.S. and that Cummings helped lead a “cooked, deceptive, demonic attempt” to remove Trump from office. Shiflett said of Cummings, “Everything that he’s done has been nothing but trying to take this president out. I believe that God had had enough, and God moved.”

Following Cummings’ death, Christian fundamentalist Dave Daubenmire denounced him as an “enemy of the cross” and added, “Maybe he didn’t know Jesus.” Daubenmire went on to say, “I haven’t been sitting around praying that Elijah Cummings would die. But now that he did, I’m glad he’s gone…. I bet he’s not pro-choice now. I bet he’s not pro-homo now.”

Radio host Jesse Lee Peterson, who is black, has been brutally mocked in the African-American community for calling Trump “the Great White Hope” — and he doesn’t mean it in an ironic way.

Peterson himself said that Cummings paid for his life for messing with “the Great White Hope.”

People for the American Way’s Right Wing Watch posted a video of Peterson saying, “if you notice, John McCain, he dead. Charles Krauthammer, he dead. And Elijah Cummings, now he dead. They all didn’t like The Great White Hope; they went against him, they talked about him. Now, they all dead. That’s amazing.”

Peterson warned Trump’s opponents, “Don’t mess with the Great White Hope. You see what happens. Don’t mess with God’s children.”
